New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo told CNN's Wolf Blitzer on "The Situation Room" the Trump administration would need to "do a 180" if it wants to reopen businesses in the country.
“The first phase was the federal government punting to the states," he said. "If the federal government now wants to do a 180 and say we’ll take responsibility, just tell me how."
He continued: “They would have to not just proclaim, they would have to say this is how we're going to do it which we have not heard to date."
Cuomo, who has been dealing with the the largest outbreak of coronavirus in the United States in his home state, said most of the responsibility for buying personal protective equipment and ventilators has been left to the states.
“I’m not going to say I don’t want help from the federal government, I do,” he added. “The more the federal government can do, the less I have to do, God bless — but then the federal government has to do it.”
